If you canât get enough of cooking with Italian grandmothers, take a ferry ride to Staten Island next time youâre in the New York area to visit Enoteca Maria, where rotating grandmas cook traditional local dishes handed down over generations from different regions in Italy. As owner Joe Scarvella likes to say, âOur food isnât âlike Nonna used to makeâŠ.â Nonna is making it!â
